2022 Rankings were finalized on 6/23/22.

Height: 6-5
Weight: 185
College: Wyoming
Classification: Fifth-Year Senior
Birthdate: 1/22/1999

Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:

Solid shooter, especially from deep
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Adequate rebounder for his size
Decent defender
Solid athlete

Cons:

Struggle to consistently create his own shot
Low volume role player
Needs to add strength
Can gamble too much defensively
Limited experience against top competition

Summary:

Drake Jeffries is an athletic, energetic swingman that is playing well in his role at Wyoming this season.  He is a sharpshooter that shoots threes at a high percentage, and he recently made 6 threes and scored 22 points in a February 23rd loss to Colorado State.  He’s a rangy defender that can make numerous plays on the ball to get stops for his team.  He doesn’t tend to shoot the ball enough, and he can be too passive on offense at times, but he may be an underrated prospect that could project well into a 3 and D type of role in the NBA.
